You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Please replace the flat, mostly monochrome icons in VS 2015

    Visual Studio already looks a lot better than Visual Studio 2012 and 2013. I like that at least some icons got colored again and that the menu no longer is all ppercase.
    However, I'm still not a fan of flat design. The colored icons still look quite strange. And most of the monochrome icons are really ugly.
    So please bring back the icons of Visual Studio 2010. Or provide multiple icon packs and let the user choose. Not everybody likes flat design!

  2. Please bring back the VS 2010 Theme, Colors & Icons!

    Why did you change all toolbox icons to black and white?
    Just to make it harder to select the correct one?
    Color is important to recognize an icon!!!

  3. Wrong translation of backlog into French

    The current translation of "backlog" into french is "journal des travaux en souffrance" however it has no meaning (especially the "souffrance" part that would mean "suffering") and gave me a hard time understanding what it is.

    A better translation would be "travaux en cours".
